A fine, bright 3 volume set in the original color pictorial dust jackets, housed in the publishers slipcase.
All three volumes signed by the illustrator Alan Lee, on the title page.
1st printing thus, from 2002, being the first time ever that the Alan Lee illustrated Lord of the Rings was issued in 3 volumes with all 50 of his color plates.
The earlier edition had only 48 color plates and was a smaller size.
These images eventually defined the look and feel of Peter Jackson's movie trilogy, and earned Alan Lee an Academy Award.
Text block is clean and bright, no signatures or writing whatsoever. Except for Alan Lee's signature!
Mint, unread copy. Just some minor shelfwear at the slipcase.
A very beautiful edition of the Lord of the Rings, signed by Alan Lee, a unique Tolkien collectable!
Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions.
